The Symbology of My Avatar

One of the most frequent questions I’m asked at Twitter is the meaning of my avatar. If you’re reading this blog and have no idea what that is, it’s the symbol on the right side of my blog header. Twitter’s 140 character limitation does not allow me to fully explain it. Even when I do it takes about 6 tweets to do so and even then it’s only just the bare basics. By explaining it here I can go into greater detail in what the base symbology is, what it means to me and how and why I designed this customized version. I have not officially studied any Eastern religion or philosophy. The following comes from a base understanding in conjunction with research, observation and meditation.

Essentially it is a triple Yin-Yan. Alternate versions are Ying-Yang, Yin-Yang, and less frequently Ying-Yan. Personally I prefer the smallest version Yin-Yan as it is also the simplest. In numerology, the vowels represent the gender of the word so when you remove them from either Yin-Yan or Ying-Yang you cannot tell which word is being referred to (Yn or Yng). The other versions do not contain this distinction and for me lose the purity of the basic symbology of this ancient Oriental symbol.

When the “i” is added to these letters it becomes feminine and when the “a” is added it becomes masculine. Hence this word and its ensuing symbology represent the ultimate dualities of the feminine and masculine principles. This represents the concept of duality so let’s explore that for a moment. Duality in and of itself appears to be a widely used term. Wikipedia says that Duality may refer to philosophy, logic, psychology, mathematics, science, film, music, and electronics . This implies to me that such broad use would indicate it is foundational so let’s explore its definition.

The definition of duality at dictionary.com is “The quality or character of being twofold; dichotomy” Continue reading

Random Thoughts
  • “You must be very grounded in the 3D world to integrate and understand the myriad of fine symbols and meanings of other realities. First of all you must clearly love and accept yourself for who you are and this is no small task When you can lovingly recognize yourself as your own creation you free yourself from the mass induced trance of powerless living. You must live your life with clear boundaries and distinctions applying great discernment and discrimination of mind to all you encounter. In addition you must learn to honestly and openly express your feelings and emphasize you own self worth as you learn to develop a true love for who you are. Conditions, excuses, competitions or wishing you were someone else will get you nowhere; and if you live life with few boundaries you may find yourself greatly infringed upon by characters not only of this dimension but others as well. You must first learn to treasure and value your human form and then you can learn to enhance your perceptions and begin to explore the web of existence by paying attention to the greater influx of vital life sustaining energies that filled your world.”
